  1. I am in the market to purchase a new sharpening skate holder, and I have always used the cam lever style holders. From what I can find online, it looks like the newer tri-lie holders are around $200 more expensive than the older lever style. My questions are: 1) Are the tri-lie holders are worth the extra money? (e.g. What is gained other than the ability for flat bottom sharpening?) 2) If I only perform ROH sharpening, does the third dimension just complicate the process of getting level edges? (Does the third dimension even get used with ROH?) 3) If I make the investment in a new holder, is there a style that fits more types of skates than another and might be the preferred overall purchase? (e.g. Does a goalie specific holder work just as well on a player skate, where as a general holder may not work as well with goalie skates?) Thanks for any insight!
  2. I thought ide start a thread about the new Sharpening and Profiling process from Elite Sharpening Systems. The Habs have been using this system since the beginning of the season. Many other teams are also starting to understand the benefits.... Both the Profiling machine and Sharpening machine have Unequaled precision and use a very unique process!!!! Take a look at this segment (in french) showing the habs EQM manager using the machine: http://www.tvasports.ca/2017/02/13/une-question-de-millimetres Here is the rough translation: Hockey is often said to be a matter of centimeters. However, in some cases it is even a matter of millimeters. Our journalist, Jean-Philippe Bertrand, presented us with a company from our home, whose equipment is in the locker room of the Canadiens. (See video above) The expertise of Aiguisage Élite (Elite Sharpening), based in Beloeil, is also the envy of several National Hockey League teams. "Running in water to the knees is a lot more demanding than running in water up to the ankles," said founding president Denis Proulx. "It's the same thing in hockey. A blade that is too sharp surcharges the ankles, knees and hips. " That's why we developed a machine that sharpens the skates with surgical precision. "The precision is such that it is like taking the size of a hair, then divide it by three and then by two," he added. In the world of professional sport, a hair can make the difference between victory and defeat. That's why we make sure that the players of the Tricolore/Habs evolve in ideal conditions of performance. "It takes three things to sharpen a blade perfectly. The self-centering, a wheel that does not deform and controlled continuous pressure of the wheel" he concluded with his concern for legendary detail. And in addition to sharpening, this South Shore company offers the profiling service for a custom blade with unequaled precision. Just like the Pros!
  3. I am relatively new to hockey and have been sharpening my kid's skates (and her teammates) for about a year. I have had very good results and feedback. But yesterday I got a pair of CCMs and I noticed that I was having trouble sharpening them. I took a close look at the runners and the thickness of the runners tapers from the usual .115" near the plastic holder to .100" or so at the edge that contacts the ice. You can actually see the falloff of the thickness of the metal as it nears the ice contact edge by holding a starrett straight edge to the face of the runner. I have not seen this on any other runners. The dad who gave me the skates said the CCM runners were brand new. So my question is whether this is an intentional part of the design or a manufacturing defect or something that happened on first sharpening when they were purchased? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

    MSH Pro Shop Steel Pouch

    I’ve been handling mail-in sharpenings since 2006 or so. And in that timeframe, I’ve seen customers send them so many ways – bubble wrap, wrapped in shop towels, paper towels, kraft paper. Then when carrying loose steel became popular, I saw customers carrying their loose steel in so many ways – the blue Bauer steel box, leather sheath-style pouches – hell, I saw someone take two Crystal Light packages pushed end to end with tape on it! I figured there could be a better way. Something that wasn't your average product. I looked to see what was currently on the market. The Bauer case separates the steel well, but it isn’t something that is easily mailable. I then started to look at the sheaths that are out there. They keep the steel separate, however, to a certain extent. They have a stitch down the center to create the pockets, but it can’t be all the way up, because it makes getting smaller steel harder to get out if so; which means the user would have to shake it out of the sheath. Which would mean that if it falls out, the end user may try to catch the falling steel, possibly resulting in cutting their hand. So, the stitch is usually halfway up, leaving an open end. That solves the smaller steel issue, but longer steel has an opportunity to touch each other, especially in transit. I started to think of what I wanted to accomplish – I wanted something that would be practical, protective and safe. So, I just grabbed the quickest piece of paper and drew it out. It made sense. (The squiggly lines are zippers, BTW.) I needed someone who gets it. I needed someone who always wants to make something that is better than anything else out there. I wanted a quality product. I called Junkyard Athletic immediately. I sent him the aforementioned sketch and we started to discuss how we wanted it to work. At the time, we knew we wanted to keep the steel separate and wanted it to fit in a legal size envelope. We got some measurements and he whipped up the first prototype. It came out great, and it fit in an envelope, but it wasn't there yet, because both steel would rest against each other, which we didn't want. So he suggested making a divider within the pocket. And I’m positive we nailed it. Introducing the MSH Pro Shop Steel Pouch. A side-loaded pouch made with a durable 600D polyester outer, heavy-duty webbing and self correcting zippers. Features an ID window as well as a 5" loop strap. Made in the USA. It accommodates two sets of steel up to 306mm (doesn't accommodate Step Extreme goal steel), and features a fleece divider to separate them. The pouch fits in a legal size envelope as well. The loop strap can hold a steel removal tool on it, and is long enough to operate it with it on. The MSH Pro Shop Steel Pouch will be for sale in the Pro Shop soon!

    Edges wear unevenly

    Hello, My edges wear unevenly from front to back - is it normal? I have seen a few videos - specialist said that good player uses whole blade, so it should be no difference between sharpeness on front and on the back of the blade. Before injury I hade a good technique and had no difference (or did not noticed). Does someone knows about blades of a pro-level skaters? what do they have? thanks

    No-Icing sharpening

    Apologies if this is the wrong forum or if it has been answered previously. I just bought a new pair of Bauer 1N with LS4 steel and was wondering what people's experience with No-Icing Sports sharpening has been. How much total are you paying for sharpening and mailing the blades back and forth? How long does it normally take including shipping? Any issues?

    Skate sharpening machine

    Hello, did someone use or sharp skate on Dupliskate MPII or EII or RS6 machines? What advantages/disadvantages do they have?
  8. For those of you who have done experimenting using different hollows without much change in body weight: how much of an impact have you found in the relationship between your body weight and the hollow selected? There is the oft-heard axiom that the heavier players should consider a shallower hollow, but I wonder to what extent. Is a solid skater at 165lbs really going to be floundering around if a 3/4" or 1" hollow is used instead of a 1/2"? Thank you, Seth
  9. Question for anyone out there that has used, or knows about, the CAG one sharpeners... I was considering buying a CAG One and haven't found a lot of great comments or reviews on them here on modsquad. The consensus here on modsquad over the years is that the CAG One is good for profiling BUT not good for sharpening. What is it about the CAG sharpeners that makes them not great at sharpening? I've seen comments that sharpening is more of an art than a science but I'm having difficulty believing that... having sharpened a ton of skates myself. If the CAG can maintain good contact at the skate blade and has an constant speed pass - then why doesn't the sharpening come out great? I trust that there is something about the way that the CAG works that makes it not a great sharpening... and I'm curious to know about anyone's theories? Thanks in advance.
  10. Does anyone know about Maximum Edge? Pro shop near me brags about using this for sharpening skates - is this legit or just a gimmick to charge more? http://www.maximumedge.ca/index.html
